2 thoughts on “Blue Note recordings: date of session and release

  1. What would be really great is to get a list of the number of pressing runs for each Blue Note release, does anyone have this kind of info? I know they say 1568 had a low pressing number (500??), but what about the rest? I figure just based on price and popularity that the first pressing runs of Jimmy Smith albums were a lot. I would like to know what the pressing run for 4013, 4047, and 4071 are.

    • Jeez, Holy Grail information. To my knowledge there is no authoritative record of the volume of sales of any Blue Note title other than speculative estimates of a few warhorse titles, like 700 copies of 1568, which is used to explain its rareity value. If anyone had good information you would know it. If it’s unknown/ speculative that is a good indication it is unknown.

      If I had the time and patience, which I don’t, I would take the 90th percentile of Popsike-published price of each title as a measure of it’s scarcity.
